So I'm thinking of getting the Enkei GTC01 Wheels...
Sup guys. I am starting my search for new rims/tires for next spring as I plan to use the stock rims for winter tire use. I might order them sooner than later if I get a good enough deal.
Anyway, got a couple of questions on the Enkei GTC01 wheels. First off, on the Enkei site, it says Hyper Black, but everywhere I look, I find Hyper silver, and honestly cant tell a huge color difference. Is there a difference?
Second off, I will get getting these in 18". What exact size/offset would you recommend?
And lastly, more of an opinion question, how do you think they would look on a Galaxy Gray RX-8 (mine is pictured)?
Thanks as always guys!

They are hyper black, or black chrome, Whichever name you want to use. I have a set of GTC01's for my 07 Velocity red and I love them and I get complement every time I go to the track (I have track tires on them so I only use them at the track). I have the 18X8.5 with a 30 offset (I believe, maybe 35) With 245/40/18's they appear very wide and they barly fit, I have had a little rubbing but I am lowered 1.2". If you want to use a tire wider then a 245, then you will want a 35+ offset. Check with Endless Rotories for what sizes fit and for a great price on Enkei Wheels.
The GTC01 is a nice looking wheel and I think hyper black looks good on almost every color.
The pictures are an accurate representation. If you want a color closure to silver then these wont be for you but I think they are a very nice wheel and the hyper black is a nice color.
It is all preference. I dont like bright "BLING" wheels, I prefer subtle things, people will see a difference, like it, but not even notice what it is they like until they take a second or third look. But thats just me.
very good condition, 18X8X48 with Toyo Proxes T1-R tires with about 5k miles on them. The tires are 235/40/18 which is a little small but wold work? Selling for $1350 which is a good deal with the tires. maybe he could take the tires off and ship for $1250???
no issues, but they will be sucken in like stock. if that's the way you choose to go its fine. you won't see too much of a difference due to tire size except having your speedometer read 1-3 mph higher than actual speed. the diameter difference is 1/2 an inch.
Last question as I have just told him their sold to me, haha. The slight slight curb rash on one wheel is there, hard to see, but its there, and I am super **** about this kinda stuff. Is that easily repairable at a wheel repair type place or anything?
I have the HKS Hipermax 3 and left the car to the lowering that HKS came. I thing it is 3 cm in front and 2.5 cm in the rear. In Greece the roads are in very bad condition but with offset and lowering it does not rub at all.
